Personal injury cases are auctioned off to the highest bidder by insurance companies, Spencers Solicitors has revealed.
This shocking revelation is at the heart of a new campaign launched by Spencers in an attempt to rid the personal injury system of questionable practices undertaken by insurers and other industry players.
For years, insurers have been selling personal injury cases to solicitors for 'referral fees', essentially a commission which lawyers must pay to represent individual claimants. In its worst guise, insurers conduct referral fee auctions amongst solicitors for bundles of cases. The 'price tag' of these case bundles is likely influenced by the degree of injuries sustained by specific cases, essentially putting people's misery up for sale to the highest bidder.
In January 2013, John Spencer (http://www.SpencersSolicitors.com) was interviewed by the University of Law as part of their training course 'Practice Management & Compliance'. In the interview John speaks about the best practices for compliance in dealing with fee sharing and referral fee arrangements.
Established in 1962, the University of Law is the UK's longest-established specialist provider of legal education and training with roots in the profession back to the 1800s.
